|Quiet Elegans - Jeff Mission|
Excerpt from a live video performance by Boston VJ Jeff Mission. The microscopic worm C. Elegans is capable of giving birth to hundreds of offspring. If there is not enough food to sustain the mother throughout the birth process, she will stop laying her eggs, and they will instead hatch inside her. As part of this process, the mother gives up her own body to provide sustenance for the newly born worms.

|Neon Elegans - Jeff Mission|
Excerpt from a live visual mix by VJ Jeff Mission at Beatfix Studios, Cambridge, MA. When suspended in water, the microscopic worm C. Elegans thrashes rhythmically in a pattern that approximates a sine wave. This simple, repetitive motion is multiplied, distorted, and amplified through a video feedback loop to create a churning swirl of color and motion.
